I spend most Fourth of July holidays occupied by a very British tradition —
The Championships, Wimbledon
In recent years there haven’t been any American tennis players, male or female, in contention for the major titles. This year’s champions are Serbian Novak Djokovic — yay! — and Czech Petra Kvitova.
But things may be changing in a few years.
The boys Wimbledon final was an all-American affair between qualifier Noah Rubin and six-seeded Stefan Kozlov. Rubin won in three sets and the two players, who are friends off-court, posed for this patriotic shot with their trophies:
Finally — some American fireworks in jolly ol’ England!
I found a Fourth of July dessert that I surprisingly haven’t made. And it’s so simple.
Beautiful and easy.
I really hope someone makes it for me.
